Campus Champion

She’s from a small town, Freeville, N.Y., but Annali Fuchs has big city talent and aspirations. The junior musical theatre major’s singing and speaking abilities were displayed at the kickoff event for the “Educating Champions: The Campaign for Cortland” on Sept. 24 at Ledyard Farms in King Ferry, N.Y. They will shine again when she stars as Gladys in the College’s production of “Pal Joey,” which starts Oct. 28. Annali’s 14-hour days in the Dowd Fine Arts Center and near perfect grade point average show a dedication that bodes well for her ultimate goal: the role of Elphaba in the Broadway musical “Wicked.”
